Faculty of Physics (Strudlhofgasse 4/Boltzmanngasse 5, 1090 Vienna), University of Vienna
We announce the conference „NeuroCultures – NeuroGenderings II“ at the University of Vienna and kindly ask for forwarding this invitation to interested colleagues, young researchers and students of your field.
Keynotes: Hilary Rose (London) and Daphna Joel (Tel Aviv University)
In co-operation with the NeuroGenderings Network, the Chair Gender Studies/Prof. Dr. Schmitz and the Gender Research Office at the University of Vienna, launches a three-day international, interdisciplinary conference entitled „NeuroCultures – NeuroGenderings II“ from 13 to 15 September 2012 at the University of Vienna.
The aim of the conference is to improve reflective scientific approaches concerned with sex/gender and the brain, and to gain particular insight into the transformation or persistence of gendered norms and values that accompany the mutual entanglements between brain research, various disciplines and public discourse.
Gender aspects have to be seriously taken into account on various levels: their empirical significance, the close entanglement of neuroscientific research with society, the impacts of neurofacts and neurotechnologies (in the broadest sense) on socio-cultural gender symbolisms and gendered power relations. Additionally, the hybrid conceptions of neurocultures have to be questioned in terms of their potentials for disrupting nature-culture dichotomies on both material and epistemological levels.
There are no conference fees for participants, but we ask for online-registration by 29 July 2012:
